summer berries and orange slushie
A flavorful, fruity, and kid-friendly drink! The bright citrus flavor of the orange juice pairs wonderfully with tart and bold raspberry.
- 4 cups hot water; we recommend brewing at 170-180 °F
- 4 tea bags Stash Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea
- 1-1/2 cups frozen raspberries
- Simple syrup to taste
- 3 cups orange juice
Makes about six 8 oz servings.
Steep the Pomegranate Raspberry tea bags in the hot water for 3 minutes. Remove the tea bags and discard. Place the brewed tea in the refrigerator until cooled to room temperature.
Pour 3 cups of tea into a blender and add the frozen raspberries; blend until smooth. Fill an ice cube tray with the mixture. Store the rest in the fridge.
Fill a separate ice cube tray with orange juice. Make sure to save aside some orange juice for blending!
Let both trays freeze completely before moving on to the next step.
Put frozen Pomegranate Raspberry ice cubes into a blender and add simple syrup to taste. Pour in the remaining cup of brewed tea little by little and pulse until you reach a slushie texture. Repeat the same for the frozen orange juice ice cubes, pouring in orange juice and pulsing until you reach a slushie consistency.
Spoon your slushie into a cup and serve; we like to layer the two flavors in a glass and garnish with a candied orange!
